Texmex with good flavors and great service ..

Not true Mexican but very decent TexMex taste. The setting is nice and airy and the service is spot on. We had Wolf who made it an outstanding experience. Try the Chimichanga and the Blackened Red Snapper.

Excellent Mexican food. The chips are very good. Loved the salsa, make sure you try the green dip it is awsome. Our waiter, Chase was probably the best waiter I've ever had. Excellent service and recommendations. Also a pleasure to talk to.

Good food in a busy atmosphere. They have a huge menu. I can't stand onions and it took a bit of discussion of find anything on their menu that did not have them. Finally was able to get come cheese enchiladas, refried beens and a salad. All were excellent.

Had a great late lunch yesterday (Oct. 12, 2014). The food was great, the waitress was great, the service was outstanding. Everything was great except the most important position...the hostess. You could tell she didn't want to be there or she was having a bad day. Not polite at all, never smiled, never said welcome, very cold.

I have eaten and drank at this wonderful places many times since it opened here in San Marcos. The food, service and quality is exceptional. Drinks are well made, reasonable and the bar area is a pleasing place to defeat the heat here in South Texas. All the dishes on the menu are great. Fajitas for two is overwhelming and... More

I think I'm being fair when I say -no matter what-at 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoon you should be able to plate a table, and get all the orders on the table within a reasonable amount of time. No it didn't happen. The food was okay, the guacamole like dip was good, the chips were good but I still think... More
